What is Transformational Bodywork Technique?

TBT incorporates the fundamentals of traditional Thai massage and structural bodywork. Bodywork is performed on a Thai floor mat with clients fully clothed. Deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and stretching techniques do wonders for treating pain, creating more ease and flow in the body, and improving circulation. Structural bodywork focuses on releasing fascial restrictions to achieve more balance in the body. Muscle activation and trigger point therapy enhance the techniques.

"Jenelle Woodlief is a powerful healer. I have had many massages and tons of body work done, but none like the 110 minutes with Jenelle. I don’t have the words to express how I felt. I feel released. Physically and emotionally. If you haven’t experienced the magic of Jenelle’s bodywork, you are missing out."
